Rather than giving Marius a humane and dignified death, Copenhagen Zoo destroyed the animal with a bolt gun instead of lethal injection as they planned to publicly dissect him after death and feed the carcass to carnivores of the zoo

Signed and noted, thanks Cal for posting.

Actually I've signed lots of petitions condemning the Copenhagen Zoo's actions, killing Marius unnecessarily when at least three other institutions offered to take Marius in.

Noted, signed and shared. This is just so sad. I signed several petitions and sent emails and posted on FB, as did countless others, in hopes that the zoo would change it's mind. I received an email about this earlier today and one of the things that I really remember was that the head of the zoo or some official at the zoo said he just "couldn't understand why the public was upset about this." It just made me sick to read it.

I have already made a comment on this so I won't do so again except to say it is appalling for this to happen.It doesn't do the Zoos reputation any good.

N&S Really don`t understand this. There was other who could take him and was there not someone who would pay USD$680,000,- too? But this Zoo was regulated and in companienship with a organization. Belive this was the reason. "If we can`t OR will have an animal, no one else shall". Fire the director and get rid of the organization behind. It is ALL about money. Put those bastards behind the bars in a Zoo and have guides to tell people who and what they have done on the tour. Belive the Zoo will have more visitors by doing this. Petition to fire the director have now passed 80.000..............

Noted & signed. The Yorkshire Wildlife Park in the UK was happy to take him & let him join their herd of male giraffes. Obviously that was just too much hassle for Copenhagen zoo - clearly murdering him in full view of little children was considered by them to be the kinder option...I feel nothing but sheer contempt towards them. RIP poor little baby..
